- Fenton's oxidation of MTBE with zero-valent ironJohn A Bergendahl
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 100 Institute Road, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA 01609, USA
Water Res 38:327-34. 2004..Second-order rate constants for MTBE degradation were 1.9 x 10(8) M(-1) s(-1) at pH 7.0 and 4.4 x 10(8) M(-1) s(-1) at pH 4.0. The total organic carbon was reduced by over 86% when a H2O2:MTBE ratio of 220:1 or greater was used...
